Need help with the calendar?

The new StLBlueKnights website is pretty full-featured. And having lots of new features can sometimes breed confusion! Am I right!? But thank you for your patience while we overcome some of the hurdles, and we all get used to the new site. If you have any questions about the site, you can direct them to [email protected].

I want to give everyone a little instruction in how to subscribe to - or sync - the AllTeam and team-specific schedules. Each team has multiple schedules: one for Games, one for Practices, and one for 'Other' events. 'Other' events might include team-specific tournaments or team get-togethers. I wish these three schedules were merged into one, but unfortunately the are not. One bonus to them being separate is that if you want to have another team's games on your calendar you can do that, and you aren't presented with all of their practices, too.

I first want to direct you to the correct calendar. The one you see below is not the ideal calendar. It is available in your Account screen when you first log in. Rather than clicking CALENDAR here, you should click HOME to go to the StLBlueKnights website home page. If you subscribe to the calendar in your Account, it will include the same event for BOTH your participant AND you if you volunteered for anything on the team. It will also NOT include any Program-wide events.

So for what we want, we go to Team Central > Calendar as seen below.

One fantastic option we now have is that you can subscribe to any number of calendars based entirely on your personal preferences. Here is an example of what a parent with a participant on both the Varsity Boys and 14U Girls team might select:

[x] Saint Louis Blue Knights - AllTeam This calendar only includes events that pertain to ALL people involved with the basketball program. These include Tip Off, Alumni Game, and the Season Kick Off Meeting we had on Sept 25th.
[x] Varsity Boys - Chad Hodges This calendar includes ONLY regular season games. This is the Schedule proper.
[x] 2018-2019 - Basketball - Varsity Boys - Chad Hodges (Practices) This calendar includes ONLY scheduled practices.
[x] 2018-2019 - Basketball - Varsity Boys - Chad Hodges (Other) This calendar includes any non-game and non-practice. Examples would be team-specific tournaments.
[x] 14U Girls - Amber Plymale Just as above, this calendar includes ONLY regular season games
[x] 2018-2019 - Basketball - 14U Girls - Amber Plymale (Practices)
[x] 2018-2019 - Basketball - 14U Girls - Amber Plymale (Other)

To subscribe, or as the website calls it, Sync, the calendar you select each Schedule, then click View Matches. Finally, click the Sync Calendar button below the calendar, which will then give you a link you can copy/paste into your preferred calendar app. You do not need to select a Location or Team. Those options would only be useful if you wanted to see all games/practices that occur at a particular location, for instance.

Notice now, that after I clicked View Matches, the calendar is much more clutter free!

The popup from clicking Sync Calendar includes the link to paste into your own app. It also includes links for helping you get it there. I've found, however that those links are outdated. So if you need help doing that, here are some better resources:
